Summer Flavors & Favorite Products

June 8, 2018

This year is flying by and it is heating up outside, isn't it?! (At least it is here in Missouri!)

Ball games are in full swing and vacations are around the corner, so I wanted to share some of my favorite summer foods and products with you! 


Zucchini: so plentiful during the summer... and SO versatile! 


  • zucchini in smoothies with fresh mint leaves 

  • zucchini spirals with sundried tomatoes, grilled artichoke hearts, Kalamata olives and grilled chicken

  • zucchini roasted or grilled with yellow squash, onions, and asparagus/broccoli (page 197 Cook 2 Flourish Cookbook)


Basil: brimming with flavor and antioxidants!


  • pesto made with walnuts and goat cheese rather than pine nuts and cow's cheese (page 248 Cook 2 Flourish Cookbook)

  • basil torn onto freshly baked spaghetti squash drizzled with olive oil and sea salt- wild salmon with this would be delicious! (page 200 Cook 2 Flourish Cookbook)


Aloe Vera Gel: for the inevitable summer sunburns

I like this aloe vera gel and add organic lavender essential oil to it to make my own soothing sun salve!

Here are some other fun summer aromatherapy recipes


Solstic Revive: a natural, nourishing electrolyte drink mix for on the go! 

Be refreshed with this portable drink mix- whether you are at a ball game or at the beach! (page 63 C



Have a beautiful summer, and I hope you get a chance to enjoy these summer favorites!
